Chlorobenzene (or monochlorobenzene) is a colorless organic liquid used in the manufacture of insecticides, dyes, de-greasing agents, adhesives, drugs, rubber, paints, dry cleaning chemicals, and as a fiber swelling agent in textile processing.
Human exposure to chlorobenzene is most likely to occur occupationally, through inhalation. According to the World Health Organization, it has been detected in drinking-water. The Maximum Contaminant Level Goals for chlorobenzene has been set at 0.1 parts per million because EPA believes this level of protection would not cause any of the potential health problems described below.

Health Impact of Chlorobenzene
Chlorobenzene is acutely toxic, affecting the central nervous system and impairing liver and kidney function. Workers who have been exposed to chlorobenze have reported symptoms of headaches, dizziness and tiredness.
Long term exposure to chlorobenzene can cause liver, kidney and central nervous system damage. Chlorobenzene is generally found in low concentrations in water and, due to a low taste and odor threshold, it can be readily detected in the large amounts responsible for its adverse health effects.
